Since January, 2000 the Schaubühne has presented the monthly series »Streitraum«, inviting for public discussions leaders from around the world in cultural studies, the humanities and social sciences. The series had its origin in the Baracke am Deutschen Theater, Berlin, where Jens Hillje began running it in 1996.
Since 2004/05, Streitraum is curated and moderated by publicist Carolin Emcke.
The Streitraum is usually taking place once a month, on Sundays at 12pm. The entry costs 6 €. School children, students and anyone else entitled to a concession can attend for 2 €.
